Florida Suffers "Double Whammy"

Florida Residents counting blessings despite storm "double whammy" 

Residents of the twice-stricken section of Florida called the Treasure Coast are treasuring their lives this morning, as they repeat the drill of dealing with disaster.

Many homeowners wrapping up repair work from Hurricane Frances earlier this month are back at square one -- gazing at damaged roofs, fractured fences and life without electricity. Mobile home resident Bill Bailey is trying to keep a sense of humor -- saying now that he's had a "double whammy" of storms, he's got hurricanes out of his system.

Jensen Beach resident Vicky Westfall is counting on a close-knit street of neighbors to get by. Extension cords crisscross her street -- where residents with generators are supplying power to keep refrigerators running.
